Question about Meetings

Hi All,

Just did a group reservation 12 rooms at a property. They awarded me Hyatt planning points.

I was staying in 1 of the rooms. I have not received WOH elite nights or points for my personal room as someone staying in the room.

Should I have received those points and EQNs? The language on the website is unclear.

BTW, here is the link from the WOH website: https://world.hyatt.com/content/gp/e...gs-events.html

It says:
As the meeting or event planner:
  • Earn one Bonus Point per eligible U.S. dollar spent (up to 50,000 Bonus Points) for hosting a qualifying meeting or event at Hyatt


As a guest at one of our hotels:
  • Members can earn 5 Base Points for every eligible U.S. dollar spent on their qualifying stays, dining, spa services and more at participating locations
  • Base Points count toward earning tier status, Bonus Points do not
This makes me think I would receive $1/spend for planning the meetings + 5 base points per every dollar on the qualifying stay that I had for my own room. EQNs are not mentioned one way or the other.

Anyone have experience with this?

Just happened across this... I believe the major downside of a hosted meeting (where all rooms are booked and paid centrally) is that nobody gets any elite nights or points.

Was there a master bill? If so, none of the hotel guests earn anything. You also wouldn't earn anything for the stay if someone else paid for it, such as the organization sponsoring the meeting.

OTOH, if you paid for your room with your own credit card, it should earn unless the contract says otherwise.

Big short cut is to look at your confirmation email upon booking. Would say if it is an eligible rate.

Im thinking of renting out a banquet hall at a HR. If one spends say $30000 + tax and fee, is the $30K considered base points?

How does these meetings go toward your status for the year with regards to "base points"?

I know it says the following:

As the meeting or event planner:
  • Earn one Bonus Point per eligible U.S. dollar spent (up to 50,000 Bonus Points) for hosting a qualifying meeting or event at Hyatt
Does this mean that you only get points and nothing towards your base points?

Thanks

You get bonus points only for the hall rental.
